  • Stainless Steel Camping BBQ Grill

    I really need a camping BBQ grill as we go camping every two weeks or so.
    I took a peek at all the BBQ places around here and they wanted $200.00 for a stainless steel one.
    I had some stainless steel sitting around so I decided to make my own.
    A few hours later presto a solid stainless steel BBQ grill ready for camping this weekend.
    I have to put some handles on it but that can wait till next week.
    This grill will be placed on top of four rocks or coke cans.

      Thanks for the kind words.
      Looking forward to cooking meat on a stick this weekend.

        I started making some lifter/poker tool.
        We don't have this style of tool over here but seems easy to make.
        Not sure on length but will make sure my hand is away from the fire.

          Looks good, they are general about 2.5 ft about length of you arm. I have one that came with a grill at about 2 ft, its a little short at times.

          Edit: just looked it up, a foot is about 30.5cm. So 2.5 ft is about 75cm

            Hi Joe,
            Thank you for that.
            The other problem is how to make a cool looking handle.

              Grill handles installed.
              Still thinking how to make cool tool handles.

                Looks good. I have some of that perforated material too. It's not stainless but I'm saving it for something cool.

                  I made some tent pegs that will be driven into the ground before the fire is made.
                  Then once the fire is running I can place the grill over the top.
                  The small dowels I welded on top should lock the grill and the pegs all together.
                  I finished the lifting tool off with a handle.
                  Now we are ready for BBQing this weekend.

                    Nice job.

                    I'm curious to see whether the heat of the campfire will cause the stainless steel to get carbide precipitation and rust ... please let us know if it rusts after a few uses.

                    I might have to make one of those.

                        Setting your tent so close to the fire is likely to burn your tent post haste(quickly).

                          Testing can be so rewarding.
                          All worked well.
